Great coffee and my favourite on the whole coast! Comfortable and quirky decorations in a beach oriented style. Wholesome meals prepared on site and are value for money, not expensive. Selection of cake depends on what the owner and cook Alex has cooked that day.Always...More

Breakfast next day didn't disappoint either. The selection isn't huge, but they are delicious, healthy and tasty breakfast...More

A small roadside place, which oozes charm and demonstrates how much the owners and staff care about what they're doing. Great cakes, tasty pulled pork roll and cracking coffee. You can even take an electric bike for a spin and see the less touristy side...More

Walter Melon is a cute little take-away food and coffee shop. Serving a select range of simple but yummy breakfast and lunch items to take-away, or there are plenty of seats if you want to hang out in the fun, colourful, art-filled, casual space to admire the art, peruse the papers or linger for a chat. Walter Melon takes pride in serving the best coffee and uses local roasters, De Groot Coffee Co, beans and Paris Creek biodynamic milk. Milk alternatives are Bonsoy soy milk and Milklab Almond milk. And, finally, if you are after something different to do, you can hire one of Walter Melon's fantastic scooter-like e-bikes and take a ride to Goolwa or Victor Harbor along the exceptional Encounter Bikeway. No licence is required! (See the Walter Melon website for more info). Nice to know: Walter Melon has recently converted to Solar power, so you can enjoy the Walter Melon Experience knowing you're supporting a small business doing their small part for the environment!
